for the arab spring. what he points out is that is a false view of history. that the obama administration both with tunisia supported ben ali or was indifferent to him, to what he was doing to his own people. with regard to egypt, they supported mubarak. hillary clinton called him a great democrat or whatever she said. in fact, it was wikileaks that brought out the documents in early december about tunisia that really show the corruption of the ben ali regime and has been given credit by the tunisian government for helping encourage that arab spring. he tries to correct the record on the obama administration somehow putting itself ford is taking credit. the people in the middle east, they know what both the obama administration did or did not do and what has been done for a long time by the united states and middle east. with regard to this other issue revealed yesterday by wikileaks as well as a number of journalists, the designation arguably that wikileaks is an enemy of the united states and julian assange is an enemy. but that service in a series of freedom of information act documents in

obama, by the way, barack obama scored mid left in both polls. >> interesting. i mean maybe not for people today because he obviously is very popular certainly with democrats, but for historians to choose a living president. >> they chose him as number ten of the 20. they put him at the bottom of the list just below ronald reagan. but it is interesting. the popular people put him in the middle of achievements. it was one of the top ten in the country, so they excluded george w. bush. to my regret they excluded george herbert walker bush who i personally thing they deserved more credit than they got. the popular vote excluded woodrow wilson. woodrow wilson charted american history for the next years. >> what do you make of the breakdown if you look at the list that's used democratic. out of ten, only three are republicans. >> yeah. i mean the people, four were republicans, but wi biand large you have to look at who the republicans are. you've about got warren harding who was always drunk and making love in a closet. corrupt. you've got herbert hoover, decent made who made a s
and the middle east? >> i thought you saw both men at their best this morning. one, i thought president obama's speech did just that and i thought it was a good speech. it laid out what we believe in as americans. it began to explain to hopefully arab citizens all over the world we don't control what comes out of america, what the essence of free speech is. i thought he did a great job. governor romney, particularly in his education nation interview with brian williams, showed he in that setting can be enormously effective, he's poised, he was prepared. it's why i think the debates are going to be very interesting. these debates are not going to be a slam dunk for president obama as many people say. governor romney is very effective in that type of venue and setting and he looks presidential, so i think these debates are going to be very, very interesting. you saw both men at their best today. >> the great sasha eisenberg tweeted this was the mitt romney that david brooks has wanted to see all along, yut lining policy, fluent on the topics. talk about the president for a second, steve. there
awarded a touchdown to the seahawks in the final play on sunday night, both obama and walker tweeting for the lockout to end, and the new jersey senate president says he's going to introduce legislation because of course that's what you do against replacement refs altogether. peter barnes joins me now, i hear there's an end in sight. >> reporter: yeah, possibly. the leader of the nfl referees' association says it looks -- let me get it right -- it sure looks good for a deal with nfl owners, telling "usa today" this afternoon that negotiators have narrowed their differences and both sides are committed to getting it done but that there's no deal right now. now, the nfl declined to comment on an espn report that the owners and refs are close to an agreement in principle and that they're close enough that they have discussed refs returning to the field this sunday. the lockout is becoming a political football for real. president obama tweeting that nfl fans on both sides of the aisle hope the refs' longout is settled -- lockout is settled soon. republican governor of scott walker, as you

obama urged both sides to get it together. after two days at the table and all the pressure from the outside, the league and the res said though reached a deal to last eight years. pensions? you bet. now the details from rick leventhal. this worked out pretty good. >>guest: it did. the commissioner says this deal would have gotten done this week anyway with or without the call that changed the outcome of monday night football but admits it was a factor to get the two sides to the table and push them to agree. the two sides met for 17 hours on tuesday and 15 hours on wednesday agreeing on the eight-year contract, the longest ever for referees with pentagons and retirement benefits spelled out and a new salary structure from last year's average of $149,000 to $173,000 next year and $205,000 a year in 2019. the commission are says this is a deal that had to get done but it doesn't mean there won't be more bad calls ahead. >> sports are not perfect. life is not perfect. that is why we love sports. you always want did try to avoid the controversial plays particularly at the end of a g
. >>> right now on "andrea mitchell reports" countdown to denver. president obama and mitt romney prepare for their first debate. both sides trying to lower expectations. >> governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> president obama is a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> flashpoint libya, the white house on the defensive after reports of both security and intelligence nurse in benghazi before that terror attack. >> standing up, sitting down. >> which ever one you like. >> there you go. >> do whatever they tell us. >> the white house line is you heard the president say, osama bin laden is dead, al qaeda is done, everything is fine in the middle east. this, obviously, contradicts -- ther series of events contradicts that campaign slogan. so, the fact is, that this was clearly an act of terror committed by people who were pretty well trained jihadists. >> more carnage in afghanistan. the taliban
with at your home? barack obama favored strongly on both of those questions, at least. >> yeah. >> what's your take away? >> we get a little bit of flack for people who says who cares who you would rather be a ship captain of the storm or dinner about. >> what does it tell you? >> part of a huge poll like the nbc wall street journal poll, tons of questions, these are two or three questions as part of that, but two, i think it gets to the sort of, particularly who would you like to have dinner with, the likability issue and i do think likability does matter. we saw in the poll, we asked who do you think is more likable and friendly, more standard issue poll question, and 61% of the people said barack obama, 29% said mitt romney. what mitt romney has to hope is, that people put aside that who do i like more question and what the undecideds are thinking when they go in the polling places, who do i think can get the job done. who cares if i like them or don't like them, who is the resume, talking about the things to get the job done. that's what romney has to hope voters are thinking about. >> and
to the highest office in this country. president obama and mitt romney both spoke at the cgi today and former president clinton stole the show at the democratic national convention. he had some tough advice for the republican candidate. mitt romney today came out with this line which was -- went down very well with the audience as you would expect. >> if there's one thing we've learned in this election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. >> what words would you have for mitt romney, given the state of the election campaign right now? >> well, i think, you know, the debates are very important for him. >> crucial? >> i think so. and i think if he's going to double down on that 47% remark, that will cause difficulties because we now know that the overwhelming number of those people work and have children, and the reason they don't pay federal income taxes is their median income is as low as it was in 1995 now, and until the current election season, republicans and democrats supported both the child tax credit and the earned income tax credit.
also has politicians from both parties agreeing on one thing. president obama and the romney camp both had something to zayed. the president tweeted out this, "nfl fans on both sides of the aisle hope the refs lockout is resolved soon." but it was romney's running mate and packers fan paul ryan who had the strongest words. >> it is time to get the real re refs. and you know what, it reminds me of president obama and the economy. if you can't get it right, it's time to get out. >> and republican wisconsin senator scott walker tweeted a call to get the unionized refs back to work. walker is famous for his crackdown of unions in his state. he responded by saying this is not a union issue. >>> the redskins coach wallet is a little lighter this morning. the league is fining offensive coordinator kyle shanahan $25,000. he was not happy with a ref's call and was given an unsportsmanlike penalty for berating the refs. he then chased them off the field and into the tunnel. >>> we know madonna is no stranger to controversy, but her latest comments' the verizon center could affect the presidentia
. president obama and governor romney both hoping for a game-changing moment in next week's debate. here's one of the most famous debate responds of all time, then governor ronald reagan and president jimmy carter. will we see a similar moment this time around? >> governor reagan again, typically is against such a proposal. >> governor, there you go again. ♪ leaving my homeland ♪ pling a lone hand ♪ my life begins today ♪ ♪ fly by night away from here ♪ ♪ change my life again ♪ ♪ fly by night, goodbye my dear ♪ ♪ my ship isn't coming ♪ and i just can't pretend oww! ♪ [ male announcer ] careful, you're no longer invisible in a midsize sedan. the volkswagen passat. the 2012 motor trend car of the year. that's the power of german engineering. droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me. droid does. keep left at the fork. does it do turn-by-turn navigation ? droid does. with verizon, america's largest 4g lte network, and motorola, droid does. get $100 off select motorola 4g lte smartphones like the droid razr. for the spender who

probably get him a win. >> chris: laura, how do you see the debate? what do both obama and romney need to be. >> one point on the debate is the end all and be all. there is not universal consensus there has to be a clear resounding victory for romney. romney has to do well, no doubt about it. the debate falls into the media of romney has to perform and if he he doesn't it is an excuse for another round of in my mind disgustingly biased pieces against mitt romney. i believe bill is exactly right when barack obama was challenged in the univision interview and he was challenged very hard. obama looked uncomfortable when he is really confronted with facts and simply worded questions. i think if mitt romney reminds people we have really 11.7% unemployment and not 8.1% that america's best days ca cannot e behind her, they have to be in front of her. i think having a moment of real leadership and maturity and contrasting that with the president who seems more comfort with ellen or the late night hosts than he is talking to the families of these insider attacks. i think romney has to be mature
. ironically, they are right. both of talented debaters. obama has some advantages. he's debated in the general election stage before. romney has the advantage of having simply debated more over the last year. so i think it's kind of an even stage there, but the situation is not comparable to reagan versus carter. the economic metrics when carter was running for re- election were extremely negative, much more negative than they are today, and just this last week, polls show that the pub has more confidence in the president's economic views and vision and program than romney. so he has lost the one advantage that he once had. secondly, there were a lot of independent, undecided voters in 1980 who had lost faith in carter and were just waiting to see if they could feel confidence in his challenger. there are so few independent voters. this is an election that's about mobilizing the bases. so going after the independent voter is not a big surprise. having said all that in the memo put out by david axelrod -- >> who is who? >> he's the campaign guru on the obama side. >> right. >> he points out tha
